If Jesus showed this woman, and in essence you and I, grace and hope (John 3:16; 8:10-11) How can we not do the same for others? A couple of days ago, we talked about loving our neighbors as ourself. I think about this too, and if we can see that we are not perfect, how can we not offer that grace to others?
Real courage arises when we have faith, and we know that we know that we know that God is with us. We can lean into the strength and the wisdom that God offers. And through that we can also feel the power of bravery.
In our world today we can become consumed by ourselves. Especially with our phones, we can have our heads down and not even engage with each other. I want to share a story that literally happened a couple of days ago.
